Here's a quick 90 second video showing how easy it is to get going using the StiKeyNotes for Revit Keynoting add-in.
Starting with an existing project with a keynote file already attached through Revit's Annotation tab.
The user is prompted whether they would like to import (this prompt will only appear one time for each model)
The existing 3800+ Keynotes are imported into the model.
Navigating through the keynote tree, a note is selected. Note the preview of the note text while hovering over the tag.
The edit pane pops up upon selection and the note is edited (twice).
Each edit has created an entry in the revision history.
With the keynote still selected, the Revision History button is clicked.
The Revision History window appears, showing (3) entries. One for the original import, and one for each revision which just occurred.
Note the coloring and formatting of the text in each revision, indicating whether the text was added or removed during that edit. Additionally, there is a timestamp and user logged for each edit.
Then a keynote is deactivated (removed from the active notes list)
The Filter Toggle button is clicked, switching between active notes and all notes (including the one which was just deleted)
The recently deleted note is then edited (while inactive)
And finally the note is then brought back into the active notes list by clicking the Restore Button.
By double-clicking on the restored note, it is placed into the active view, and attached to a piece of equipment.
Note that a deactivated note may not be placed, and a note which has been placed may not be deactivated.
The note tag is then automatically set by StiKeyNotes.
